ANG PA advances ANG priorities and achieves mission objectives through integrated planning, execution, and assessment of communication capabilities. Through strategic and responsive release of accurate and useful information and imagery to ANG, domestic, and international audiences, PA puts operational actions into context; facilitates the development of informed perceptions about ANG operations; helps undermine adversarial propaganda efforts; and contributes to the achievement of national, strategic, and operational objectives.
Services available from the ANG/PA office are grouped into four categories consistent with ANG Common Output Level Standards (ANG COLS):
ANG PA specialists are available during normal duty hours from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday at 612-9494.
The Joint Base Andrews PA office is the point of contact for all afterhours emergency services: security forces and alert incident support. Contact the command post by calling the base operator at 301-981-1110.
For afterhours news media or media inquiries related to the ANG please contact the National Guard Bureau at 703-627-7273 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
For PA support requests, members are encouraged to discuss possible requests with PA staff or email the PA Org box as far in advance as possible. Requests for support should be submitted with a completed ANG Form 833. Advance notice provides PA the ability to ensure the necessary equipment and personnel are available. PA schedules are built in advance and prior coordination is key.
Consumer-grade still and video equipment is available for self-help use on a first-come, first-served basis for use when official PA support is not available.
